It is our pleasure to announce the Blue Ash Y swim team’s nominees for the 5th Annual 2017 Splash Banquet, Monday evening, May 8 at the downtown Hilton Netherlands hotel. We were honored to nominate each of our members listed below. It is a huge honor to be recognized for your fast swimming, volunteer time, coaching accomplishments and /or your grit!
Each of the nominees will be honored by coming forward on stage and then listening to the results after the envelope is opened. These swimmers and adults should each sign up for the banquet – no charge – as soon as we open reservations. We need a preliminary count by Monday, April 24th!! We can add a few until Wednesday, April 26th.
We also invite others to the banquet – sign up on our website soon (for a charge). This banquet honors the swimmers, coaches and parents of the 4 YMCAs of Greater Cincinnati at this annual banquet. Each team nominates members of their team and then a winner for each category is announced and each winner gets a trophy.
Also at the banquet is a Silent Auction to help defray some of the costs of the banquet. Hopefully anyone attending will come ready to bid on our auction items. We are still looking for more items to auction off! If you have – tickets to an event, coupons or give aways from a company, time at a rental or a service to render, everything is welcome and everything is donated to help the cause!
